Vette is asking for the $ this week

So the Vette has spent most of the winter sleeping. I think it has been out of the garage twice since Thanksgiving.

However the last time a couple of weeks ago it left a large mark in the driveway. Unfortunately it was not rubber. It was oil

So it has spent the last week at the doctor. A front main seal. Could it be that easy? Nope, power steering pump (Hoses and such also). Hopefully that will end the spots on the carpet :)

It has been rather trouble free the last 2 years. Guess it was time to give it love and care.

They hopefully fixed the vibration in the steering also. That was only $20 Supposedly the wheels were balance via static balancing versus some other way and this new way will make it smooth (Or as smooth as a corvette gets)

I was hoping to get it out this weekend and drive it like it was stolen. However with the weather coming, not looking positive. In fact I have to figure how to get it from the doctor to home Friday. It is supposed to be a bit nasty Friday so that may be handful. You do not appreciate front wheel drive fully till rwd. You would think wide tires would be better on snow or rain. Not so. One rain storm I tried on a road trip and not fun.

I cannot wait for the smell of burning rubber in the spring.

More than just breaking down the dollar bill.

Keep the change coming, that way we are moving forward.

Undercover Boss ep 2

I am still loving it.

My Media Center had some issues (I caused) SO I had to watch at

CBS is a much better streaming experience than ABC and Fox.

Anyway, great episode. Some great points that I came away with.

1. Replacing your father in a family owned business would be tough if not impossible.
2. Oh Jimbo. Probably should have been made an example. My guess is that he does worse things, they were just not in front of the camera.
3. Hooters is a tough brand. The waitresses are the brand. However due to the name and the brand, many feel it is degrading. This is clearly a loop.

Lets face it, their wings are second to none.

Texting and Driving almost took me out.

No, I wasn't the one texting. I went to the mall for the Monday Chinese food and on my way out, if I was not paying attention I would have been run over. Clearly the person driving was embarrassed, however not enough not to immediately after slamming on the brakes, looking at me, then at the phone.

I have to be honest, this is an addiction. If you cannot wait the 10 seconds to park to check your texts than you are an addict.

It should be illegal. It is a no brainer.
